For thousands of years, artisans around the globe have been using gold and other metals to imbue objects with an elevated sense of significance and value. Attracting the viewer’s eye with its unparalleled ability to capture and reflect light, precious metals often carry connotations of the otherworldly and divine. In this group exhibition, artists working in a wide range of three- and two-dimensional media employ gilding and other metal work techniques to play off of this practice’s rich history. "Gilded" will include works by Kelli Hoppmann, Paul Nitsche, Alicia Czechowski, Richard Jones, Ryan Myers, Melanie Sherman, Reid Schoonover, Craig Clifford, Jill Baker Gower, Erica Schlueter, Ali Kauss, Jessica Calderwood, and Juliane Shibata.
